Hitachi TagmaStore Network Storage Controller (NSC)
The Hitachi TagmaStore™ Network Storage Controller, model NSC55, blends enterprise-class functionality with a modular, rackmounted, small footprint package to meet the needs of fast-growing, midsize departments while supporting distributed or departmental applications in large organizations.
The NSC55, powered by the Hitachi Universal Star Network™ crossbar switch architecture, delivers the controller-based virtualization, logical partitioning, and universal replication introduced with Hitachi’s TagmaStore Universal Storage Platform for open systems and mainframe environments. Now, smaller organizations can enjoy the same benefits as large enterprises in deploying and managing their storage infrastructure in ways never possible before.
The NSC55 supports advanced storage management and data replication features previously not available in modular storage. You can aggregate heterogeneous storage devices into a virtual pool, manage it through a single console using a common set of tools, simplify your storage environments, maximize the use of existing resources, and reduce Total Cost of Ownership.
The NSC55 is the foundation for Application Optimized Storage™ solutions for mainframe and open systems environments, storage area management, business continuity, data protection, storage consolidation and simplification, and tiered storage for data lifecycle management and compliance applications.
